Bastian Peter is a street photographer living and working in Basel, Switzerland.
Growing up within his family`s mask making atelier in Basel, an early curiosity developed surrounding what lies beneath any facade.
Storytelling in many forms, especially photography and cinema, would fuel a passion for narrative and point of view. Without professional background, in spring 2019 he picked up a camera and started walking the streets, on the lookout for an interesting scenery. Since then, with a growing interest and a evolving eye, it felt natural for Bastian to explore his city.
Testing several different focal lenghts, Bastian is mostly drawn to 50mm.
Self taught his work has been evolving into the use of colour and light as a vehicle for emotion and storytelling.
